Hospitality Checklist

-- Freshly-laundered bras tucked safely away in their dresser drawer. Check.

-- Plush Sun Bear and ginormous Valentine Frog put up out of easy reach. Check.

-- House and garage swept for mouse baits; all put safely away. Check.

-- Guest bedroom dishes of chocolates and Kisses removed. Check.

-- Last of the post-Boskone Renovation party kit returned to pantry shelves and the basement Fan Room. Check.

Most of us tidy up a bit when company's coming. Me, I tidy up for canines.

Today's efforts were for the benefit of one canine in particular, of course. Milo the Moon Dog is vacationing here for the next nine days. I'm looking forward to the wind and rain finishing up the job of blowing themselves far away from here. Milo and I are looking forward to pleasant ambles over at Conant Brook Dam.

Oh, sure, when I'm visiting a friend, nothing says "Welcome" like a drawer full of freshly-laundered bras.

Most definitely... though I wonder why they are kept from the dog.

Umm...so he doesn't eat them.

Really.

As the Milocare document puts it, "Your bras. Hang 'em high. He's not destructive, but he WILL eat your bra. I've lost one to him and I had to shell out $40 to his last dogsitter."

Why Dogs are Better Than Men
In honour of the new man about the house (if only for 9 days) - this.

Now that is what I call polite!
I just went through the opposite with a neatnik friend coming for a day without much notice. My house was awash with white dog hair off Maggie, my lab, and spiderwebs because we live in the woods.
Why do I care? Well I like to have her visit, I guess.
